my Team, and I play at this fields scenarios often, this is a great place to play for the player not looking to get lost on a field, this venue has a multitude of fields that transition well into each other the field is set up in a circle formation so you play from field to field so you see everything they have to offer, and they are a BYOP field

only drawback in scenario play their tends to be choke points so you can get bottled up for a period of time.

must see fields Town, pirate ship, castle, and they probaly have one of the best auto grave yard you will find

owners are great, staff are excellent, and the local players are fun, and they have fun scenarios cost $25 pre reg $35 day of a very afforable place to play, and worth the trip from Chicago suburbs 2.5 hrs

Customer service is better than average. They were able to help a buddy of mine fix his gun which means they have technical skills besides the ability to blow up bunkers. They also are willing to spend time with the newbies to ensure everyone is safe and has a good time. They can cater to new groups or to seasoned players.

Fields are distinct and themed but all can be combined for the big games. For newer players the themes make the experience better. Few newbies like playing on a speed field against professionals, all they do is get shot and that's not much fun. The management puts a lot of effort into creating environments, not just building bunkers. Rumor has it; they are building a new fort this year to go along with the pirate ship they just put in.

Most fields can accommodate smaller groups; the really good fields can make it fun for larger outings. Last time I was there we there were over 400 people and it wasn't crowded. During the play the teams became lopsided because of players leaving so they stopped the game and asked people to switch sides to make it more fair and fun for all. This really helps the newer players by pairing them with more experienced players so they don't get shot too much.

The best thing about Fort Knox though is the price. They let you bring your own paint (BYOP) if you have a preference or they sell paint at reasonable prices. No $80 boxes of field paint! Obviously they have rentals so players can bring friends. If you pre-register for their big games it will save you more $.

Fort Knox is a pretty good scenario field. It is very cool how all the field play into each other. The staff are friendly and run a very smooth open play. If you are a tournament player like myself it may or may not be for you. The only tournament like field they have is a tire field that is set up in a tournament style fashion. However, I do enjoy the occasional scenario and they offer a few good games throughout the year.

Some areas of the field can get bottlenecked. Always a blast to play at Fort Knox!

This place treats their customers right and consistently updates their place with new fields every year. They run big games about every 2 months which are great and a lot of fun. Plus they are a "bring your own paint" field which is a huge plus for lots of ballers. Head over to ft knox for a great time

Played there once for a two day scenario game. my team had a blast. the staff was very helpful.

really liked the fields especially the bridge, pow camp and the town.
spent most of my time on the bridge, love the adrenaline you get while playing on the bridge.

Would play there more often if it was just closer

Fort Knox is a great field that is well priced, managed by EXTREMELY friendly people and has good refs. Each field has a distinct theme and they play variations of games to keep things interesting (zombies is a favorite). Out of all the fields I think Bridge of the River Kwai overlooking the prison camp was my favorite. My buddy lives only about 10 minutes from here and I played at the field while visiting from out of town. Although they allow you to bring your own paint, they offer a large variety of paint to buy at reasonable prices and will even offer to buy back any un-opened paint you haven't used at the end of the day. This field also has a luxury that is normally only seen at indoor facilities; indoor plumbing.

If I want to be hyper critical, some of the fields were a little on the small size but I grew up playing at Fox River Games (Illinois) in a time that large fields ruled the day. I might be a little over sensitive on this point. The fields can be combined and the field is used as a whole for "big games".

In all, Fort Knox is a paintball field that all others should strive to become. I only wish that it was a little closer than a 4 hour drive.
